Open House and Ice Cream Social

Hard for me to believe she's my only child left in elementary but here she is sitting at her desk showing me some of her work she's already done in her kindergarten class

Below she is showing me some of their books they get to read

Below is her cubby where she keeps her backpack and blanket for sleeping at naptime

and here is the rug and the "purple square" she sits on during story time. She says they sit crisscross applesauce, cute!

After open house we went outside and Micayla got to have ice cream with chocolate syrup and rainbow sprinkles from the ice cream social, her favorite part

The MOST rewarding job !!

I started work Monday at Shiloh school working full time in the kitchen. What a blessing!!
I get to see my kids everyday and be home when they're home.
I work with an awesome group of ladies and just could not ask for a better job. It is hard work but fun at the same time. It has been a long time since I have worked because I was always blessed with getting to stay home with each of my kids, but now that Micayla is in Kindergarten 5 day's a week I decided I was ready to do something and what better thing to do than to have a job where you can be around your kids and be home during the summer and holidays when they are.
This is by far the MOST rewarding job, for me .

First day of Kindergarten

Today was Micayla's first day of Kindergarten !! Her teacher is Mrs. Sharp and she's super nice, Micayla really likes her :) It was hard on me this morning, but working there made it a little easier :) I'm very proud of Micayla and hope this is a super fun year for her!

First day of school

Today is Shiloh's first day for the secondary (high school). Aca is in the 6th and Deric is in the 11th !! Hard to believe how fast my boy's are growing up.

There they go, walking out the front to Deric's jeep. Tear/Sigh ..

Roller City

Micayla finally got to go skating and "really skate" in a rink. She was super happy and is ready to go back.. She and Aca skated and played skating games from 1 til 3 Saturday.
I have to say, the music they played and watching the kids really brought back some memories. I couldn't keep from cracking up the whole time.

Skating in the house

Skating in the house is not something we normally let our kids do, however, Micayla has been wanting roller skates and to learn to skate for a while now , so we broke down and got her some and we're making her start off in the house.. probably lame to some of you but she's actually doing pretty good.. The day we first bought them we made her try in the garage (with me and Mica) on each side of her holding her hands and that didn't work at all.. she was flopping all over the place, so Mica said try on the rug in the house then go from there to the hardwoods and the ceramic tiles (scary) but she's really doing well and doing it without our help.. Look out skate place, your next :)
